COUNSELING & SEMINARS
The academic, athletic, and social demands on today's young student have never been higher or more intensive and we recognize that familial assistance and involvement is paramount to the development of children. As the late, renowned English philosopher John Donne said, "No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main." Perhaps now more than ever, we believe in that kind of communal approach to learning, living, and growing -- as both scholars and as individuals. In addition to our scholastic services, we offer private and public seminars for parents and students that offer personal solutions to a wide-range of topics and issues.
A rational, respectful approach
emphasizing student and and parent involvement and interaction that
facilitates effective communication skills, including strategies to create positive outcomes an improve behaviors,
attitudes and outcomes in and out
of the classroom.
ORGANIZATIONAL & STUDY SKILLS
Good grades start with understanding how good grades are achieved -- getting organized, reducing clutter,
prioritizing what needs to be done and having a plan to get it done. These skills transcend grade levels and focus on the interplay between order and orderly thinking.
STUDENT HELP & MENTORING
One-on-one or small family groups sessions designed to deal with frequently encountered student issues including high school course selection, resume building, career planning, student-athlete assistance, time management, and student anxiety and its subsequent effects.
Students today are stressed and overwhelmed by school, parents, social relationships and demanding activities. Learning how to stabilize and manage emotions while meeting deadlines and demands is crucial.
Choosing classes wisely is a must for students who desire a competitive portfolio for college admission. A balance between AP and academic courses is ideal, along with a preparatory workload that establishes a solid GPA.
Young adult problems can be overlooked by educators and parents but all students are affected by peer pressure and social issues and directly correlate with academic performance, self confidence and mental health.
Playing competitive high school sports and meeting the challenges inherent in team athletics creates complicated choices, schedules and priorities concerning practices, games and academics. Planning, organization and consistency are key.
